The Australian slasher Bad Girl Boogey, featuring a voiceover cameo from Bill Moseley, gets a summer release in North America
Dark Star Pictures has picked up the North American distribution rights to the Australian slasher movie Bad Girl Boogey, The Wrap reports. The second film from writer/director/producer Alice Maio Mackay (the first was the 2021 vampire movie So Vam), Bad Girl Boogey features a voiceover cameo from genre icon Bill Moseley (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, The Devil’s Rejects, etc.) and will be receiving a VOD, digital, and physical media release on July 4th. Dark Star Pictures also intends to give the film a theatrical release at some point before that date.
Written by Mackay and Ben Pahl Robinson, Bad Girl Boogey centers on Angel, whose mother was brutally murdered one Halloween night, when blood was shed by a deranged killer wearing a parasitic mask cursed with black magic and bigotry. Sixteen years later, when Angel’s best friend is slaughtered by a killer with the same mask, they must overcome their personal struggles, fight their fear, and find the masked killer before he, or it, slaughters everyone they hold dear.
The Wrap describes Bad Girl Boogey as a “queer horror film” and notes that it features a cast of queer and trans actors. Among the cast members are Lisa Fanto, Iris Mcerlean, Chris Asimos, Toshiro Glenn, Lewi Dawson, and Kate Bonney.
Mackay had this to say about the distribution deal: “I am thrilled to be unleashing my sophomore feature Bad Girl Boogey with Dark Star Pictures for its North American release. I can’t wait for it to connect with its audience of horror-loving queer misfits who I hope will have as much fun watching it as we had putting it together.“
Dark Star President Michael Repsch added: “Bad Girl Boogey is a shock to the system. Writer and director Alice Maio Mackay has masterfully crafted an exciting, visceral slasher film with an important message of identity and bigotry. Her vision is one that will make audiences think, while soaking them in blood and terror.“
